Law Intern (Summer 2019)
Reports to: Legal Director
Location: Washington, DC
Position Overview: NAPAWF is now accepting applications for full-time law student interns for the summer of 2019. The internships will be unpaid. However, applicants with independent funding through their law schools or other scholarship programs are strongly encouraged to apply, and we will work with them to provide all supporting documentation necessary to obtain such funding.
Summer law interns will support the work of NAPAWF’s Legal Program. Interns will assist in all aspects of litigation, including fact development and investigation; legal research; drafting of legal memoranda and briefs; and client interaction. Interns will also engage in legislative and policy-related work as it connects to legal analysis and advocacy, and will attend designated meetings and events on behalf of NAPAWF. Interns will work in our Washington, D.C., office under the direct supervision of NAPAWF’s Legal Director.
Ideal candidates will exhibit strong legal research and writing skills, a strong work ethic, the ability to work well both independently and in a team, excellent oral communication skills, and enthusiasm for social justice issues. Prior experience working on issues involving women’s rights, immigrant rights, AAPI issues, or economic justice preferred. Fluency in an Asian language is a plus.
